The New York Times and photo fakery
Thomas Lifson, editor and publisher of The American Thinker, writes today about what he feels is the case of the New York Times printing a fake photo from last week’s failed attempt at taking out Al Qaeda’s number 2 man Ayman al-Zawahiri:
The only problem is that the long cylindrical item with a conical tip pictured with the boy and the man is not a missile at all. It is an old artillery shell. Not something that would have been fired from a Predator. Indeed, something that must have been found elsewhere and posed with the ruins and the little boy as a means at pulling of the heartstrings of the gullible readers of the New York Times.
Lifson makes a good case, so make sure to read the whole thing.
